I bought these to replace a many years and many trails (mostly in the rugged Adirondack High Peaks) worn pair of LLBean mid-cut leather Gore-tex hiking boots. I wear orthotics for collapsed arches, heel spurs, and intermittent bouts of plantar fascia. My priorities are fit,good support,Gore-tex for muddy trails, roomy toebox,and sticky soles for wet rock. Of course, durability is important. I decided to try a low-cut hiking shoe because I have wide ankles and a higher cut always caused rub and rash issues. First the pros: These have a nice roomy toebox with the same kind of toe bumper that my Bean boots have...great for rocky trails. The soles have good grab on rock face and seem pretty stable. They accomodate orthotics. So far, the Keen-Dry system (Keen's version of Gore-tex) is holding up. I intentionally stepped in a stream and stayed dry. But, of course, because they have low tops they will not be as reliably dry as a mid-cut or higher. The low top is very comfortable. The color choices are great. I really like my choice of slate black/seneca rock, a nice medium brown with a muted plum trim.The cons: My lasat shoes were 9.5; these are size 10. I'm not sure how durable the lacing system will be because there are no eyelets through the leather or any metal at all. Instead, the laces run through a series of woven straps. The lace system does not allow for adequate adjustment for heel snugness, which I need because the heel cup is rather wide. I find myself stopping to adjust laces frequently to snug in the heel without creating too much tightness over the instep. I have a narrower heel and wider forefoot. I thought they were the best choice of several boots I tried on, but after actually hiking in them I am worried about the heel slippage as I hike uphill. I'm hoping that as they break in some more they will become more flexible and the heel will work with me better. A heavier sock is not an option unless I can find a sock with a thicker heel and normal weight toe.I like the shoes except for this heel issue. If I had felt he heel slip, I might not have kept them. but it's very hard to test a hiking boot in the house. Only a hike will tell, but then they can't be returned.I guess the bottom line is if you have a narrow heel, try a different model.

This (in the grey and pink color) still felt and looked very clunky and like a serious hiking shoe not very fun at all. More importantly, the lacing system as others have mentioned cannot cinch properly on my too narrow heel. Returned.

I have worn Keens for years. They always fit my wide feet and high arches! These Targhee II Keens fit well but are not as comfortable as past models. They slip on my feet unless I tie them really tight. I even bought a new pair of insoles to see if that would help with the slip and lack of cushion. I resent spending well over this much on shoes and then buying insoles too!! And in the end it didn't make much difference.

These are great hiking shoes - very comfortable! I definitely recommend them. The only thing I would say is that I ordered a half size larger than I normally do after reading many of the comments, but wish that I had ordered my regular size. I find them true to size. They are a little too big for me now.

I really wanted to love these. The 8.5 slipped on my heel too much and the 8 was too short. Darn! Back they go.

I have owned these hiking boots for about 8 years, I think, and it's finally time to replace them. I loved them so much and they lasted so long that I'm going with the same ones again. Even after all these years, they are still waterproof. I can step in a stream or hike in the rain and my feet stay dry. They are super comfortable and this is coming from someone with Sesamoiditis, Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs. Last year one of the black treads started to loosen which besides my new puppy chewing them up recently, is the only reason I am replacing them. For me, these have been a great, durable shoe for an extended period of time. I did order an 8.5 and I normally wear a 7.5 or 8. I also need an 8.5 in Nike sneakers and I have tried on countless Merrells through the years that never seem to fit quite right. Hopefully that info helps someone with trying to order online.

I'd also recommend: j-41 I like them for a day when I might be out for a light hike but also going out to dinner.

So disappointed. This is my 4th pair of Targhees. These are cut different at the ankle -- higher. They rub the bottom of my ankle bones especially on the outside. I've been wearing them, thinking well, maybe I just have to break them in. I never had to break in my other Targhees. Today I tried on my old ones and find there is a whole finger width between the top of the shoes and my ankle bone! I feel like crying. Guess I'll be wearing the old ones unless I'm going into boggy areas. The old ones now leak.
